Treat then gently and they are not a problem. Start flapping your arms around or hit them with a newspaper etc and they might then get annoyed!

I'm going to take my chances with the newspaper and arm flapping. :lol:

Wow, beautiful. Nice work.

I agree with the comments on the Bumble bees, they're like cuddly teddy bears. I'm not as brave as I used to be but when I was younger I used to stroke bumble bees on flowers, I was fascinated with them, they're still beautiful! :)

I never knew they could sting repeatedly too.

Thanks again for the comments :)

Phil - you are right, changing camera settings with an insect on your finger is kinda interesting :)

Thanks for the comments all - appreciated.
As Toby says not brave at all - I've handled bumble bees frequently and never been stung.

Wondertwins - it did make me jump when it landed :)

DRD1- yes 5dmk2 and MPE-65 lens - quite interesting changing camera settings with a bumble bee on your finger :)

Brian V.

and how did you focus with just one hand?

Thanks for the comments :)

Pat - I managed to set the magnification I wanted and then focused by resting the lens on the same hand the bee was on and moving the camera (or my finger) to get good focus. This is one case where short focus distances are veru useful
